If I really press myself, I can remember. The warning signs were there. No neon signs, mind you, just little sparks at the end of a very long string. Funny that I could have been blind enough not to realise that the string was a lighted fuse.
When her partner of three months, Tad Showers, proposes, April thinks that everything in her life is finally falling into place. Between her hippy mother and her she-devil boss, marriage seems like the place she’ll find love, security and sensibility. But too soon after they’re married, the honeymoon ends.
Is it normal for her husband to never mention his family, rack up secret credit card debt and get less sleep than your average insomniac? Are you still supposed to stand by your man, even if it turns out he isn’t who you thought he was? When she promised “for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health,” this isn’t what she pictured.
A touching and turbulent journey of love, betrayal and passion.
